look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look - golden amber orange color. Pored with slight white foam head. Slight bubble. Looks thick.
Smell - smells like fermenting hops. I've got a scent of citrus and pines with a heavy malt backbone.
Taste - has a taste orange peel behind a thick malty texture with a bitter piney aftertaste.
Feel - fairly thick with medium carbonation which is surprising since I don't see that many bubbles. Goes down smooth.
Overall - great beer. Not usually to much of a fan of English style beers but I think this us great. Maybe because most 3 Floyd's beers are different and fantastic.
